Coach Richard Agar is not concerned about Wakefield's barren run and believes an upset could be on the cards in Sunday's clash with Warrington.

Wakefield's play-off hopes were further damaged by a 26-24 defeat against Bradford last weekend, extending the Wildcats' losing streak to three games.

Agar's men had previously been edged out by two and then seven points in back-to-back games against Leeds, leaving them three points outside the top eight.

Warrington can set their sights on top spot after last weekend's 40-30 win over Castleford, but Agar feels his players are not far away from an impressive win.

"Looking at our last three games, we have felt we have been in a good run of form. We have had three extremely tight games," said Agar.

"We always attack every game that we have. We know if we can match them in certain areas we have got a team that can trouble any team in the competition."

"I don't think we'd approach any game and think we hadn't got a chance. We're not that type of team.

"We always attack every game that we have. We know if we can match them in certain areas we have got a team that can trouble any team in the competition.

Big win

"We are certainly not going there on the back of three defeats thinking we have got a crisis.

"We are thinking we are not too far away from getting that big win."

Wakefield's costly mistakes in recent weeks have frustrated Agar and he admits they cannot afford any more slip-ups with just four games remaining.

"We have had too many errors over the last two weeks," he said.

"Defensively we are holding up all right but if we are constantly inviting the opposition to play down our end, and having to defend the tryline more often than not, eventually they will find a way through.

"It's frustrating. We have seen for long periods we have been the better team against some quality opposition.

"I think we are up against it. Time is running out for us.

"We are going to need an exceptional run of form from, and hope other results go our way.

"That is out of our hands but while we have got a chance, this team will fight to the very end."
